  • Transition to the tendering culture which is now affecting most parts of the sector.

At the end of this programme, you will have greater confidence and understanding in:

Identifying the main statutory providers relevant to your area of work.

  • Understanding the government’s outcome-based approach.
  • How to maximize opportunities and minimize threats from tendering.
